Airplane Tours

Airplane Tours of the beautiful scenery around Presidio will be offered during the Dude of the Dead Music Festival.

Pilot Marcos Paredes, owner of Rio Aviation Inc., would like to show you the fascinating Big Bend area from the air.  A seasoned pilot with many years of flight experience, Marcos retired from a career as a National Park Ranger and loves sharing his unique perspective on the Big Bend region. His extensive “boots on the ground” experience coupled with a birds-eye view from his airplane is a truly enlightening experience.
